It seems completely insane to me to insist that software MUST prevent (or atleast take steps to prevent) the user of said software from breaking the law wherever he may be at the moment.
Typical cars will, infact, if you push the pedal to the metal, go faster than the speed-limit at your location. They will not "consult a database to somehow figure out where you are and ensure that you stay within legislatory compliance"
The same is true for more or less all other technology we use daily. The user is responsible for not using tools in illegal ways. Not the tool.
